People question their right to freedom of expression. And in a way, its totally right. But, I totally agree with the approach of Indian Govt. in certain circumstances. For example, the pics that spread in Facebook which severely damaged religious sentiments. Those should be definitely removed, no excuses. I think the way Kapil Sibal pointed out these situations went totally wrong, or I should say the approach of Indian Govt. on this issue, was totally wrong.
Kapil Sibal, mentioned that objectionable content should be removed from Internet. I agree, but the debate rose over the definition of objectionable content. And the example Kapil mentioned was the pictures that tried to defame an Indian politician, Sonia Gandhi. That's where things went wrong. And if he thought this was a good move, it turned out to be terrible.
